Our forebears designated every 7 years a sabbatical year, shmita, in order to promote a just, equitable and healthy society.
Through text study, discussion and meditation, Rabbi Margalit will lead us in considering how we may draw upon ancient wisdom to repair our relationship to the earth, and to nurture ourselves.
Natan Margalit created “Organic Torah”, a “not-for-profit program-based initiative to integrate ancient Jewish wisdom as a leading-edge voice in contemporary efforts to create a healthier, more sustainable, prosperous and just world”.
Rabbi Margalit has been a regular presenter at Temple HBT through Meah and specially-created courses. He received rabbinic ordination at The Jerusalem Seminary in 1990, and earned a Ph.D. in Talmud from U.C. Berkeley in 2001. He has held teaching positions at the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College, RRC, and Bard College. Natan is visiting rabbi at Congregation Adas Yoshuron in Rockland, Maine and Spiritual Leader at the Greater Washington Coalition for Jewish Life, in Litchfield County, Connecticut.
